@king-saproling I've been wanting to make a deck with Zur's Weirding for a while now, but I think I'd rather use it in something like Muldrotha where having your cards discarded has no real negative impact on your play. This deck functions on a few key components that I can't really get back once they're gone, so I'd prefer to avoid giving my play group in particular an easy avenue to shutting down my strategy. I do love the card though.

I opted for Honorable Passage over Justice just to keep it as a fun little surprise rather than a static effect that everyone's constantly thinking about and playing around. Justice might be more functional as a game slowing piece, but I enjoy the idea of slapping somebody with their own Aetherflux Reservoir out of nowhere.

Kormus Bell honestly just makes me want to make a Shirei deck.

I think I'll be replacing Wrath of Marit Lage with Drought. I had considered the card before but I had assumed that the black mana symbols in its rules text rendered it unable to be modified and thus only suited to shutting down black decks. After actually checking the updated oracle text, however, the rules literally say "black mana symbol" instead of just using the symbol, so I'm going to assume I can legally change that bit of text. On second thought though, it might be a bit of a headache arguing over and over about its legality, so I don't know. I'll definitely keep it in mind.

I do like Bubble Matrix as a way of preventing people from just swinging with their leeches in order to get rid of them. Plus it'll probably result in a lot less hate and arguing at the table.

Thanks for the recommendations. I do appreciate it a lot. :^)

Wiizy on this is a deck Sydri Commander

Aetherflux Reservoir if you use Sydri and make it a creature then give it lifelink when you pay the life to deal damage it deals damage. Meaning that you gain the 50 life back allowing for you to reuse it and kill everyone.

At 8 CMC, Parhelion II and Akroma, Angel of Wrath just don't do much.

Now, I'm not personally a fan of lifegain, so I would suggest you remove the lifegain subtheme. I could just be biased, though. Outside of decks that can use lifegain as a resource (like Heliod, Sun-Crowned), lifegain just becomes a card that delays your death without giving you any real tools to overcome whatever situation may be killing you. Now, if a card can gain you life AND do something else, then it's much better. This includes cards like Archangel of Thune. But if a card ONLY gains you life and does nothing else, it's probably not the best. These include Resolute Archangel, Beacon of Immortality, Angelic Chorus, Shattered Angel, Boon Reflection, Rhox Faithmender, and more.

Since lifegain strategies require both cards that gain life as well as cards that use life, in order to make the strategy as viable as possible, the commander should fill one of those 2 roles. Otherwise, you end up using a lot of deck space to put in cards that individually have little impact. Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, for example, is a good lifegain commander since she provides all the life you need to make use of cards like Aetherflux Reservoir. But I could just be biased since I don't have much experience with lifegain outside of my own Trostani deck I used to have. Good luck making cuts!

Monomanamaniac glad you like the deck! I had a selesnya tokens deck back when I first started playing Magic and turned it into this one when I first got into Commander. Yeah I don’t own many copies of Sol Ring and Arcane Signet so the ones I do are in other decks, but I plan on adding them here when I can! Same thing for Panharmonicon too. Somehow never really thought about Helm of the Host, good call! And I just loved Seance, will definitely try to fit it in this deck too, thanks for all the suggestions!

About Aetherflux Reservoir, yeah it usually catches people by surprise. It has helped me close out games I couldn’t win through combat, same with Felidar Sovereign.

Don't know if you like suggestions, but it looks like you're not running Sol Ring or Arcane Signet, which are staples. I'd also suggest thinking about Helm of the Host, because populating non-legendary copies of trostani is particularly spicy. Also Panharmonicon is really insanely good in this deck. Lastly a sleeper card I adore is Seance because trostani can populate a permanent token you can keep.

As for cuts, nothing really stands out to me, I love the use of Aetherflux Reservoir in this deck because even if you're not storming trostani is buffing your life total immensely. I like this deck, I've always wanted to build one and this may have given me some inspiration

Monomanamaniac on Isochron scepter and dramatic reversal …

jaymc1130 I'm honestly going to have to invest in Muddle the Mixture that's some affordable tech right there lol. As is, my play group frowns on infinite combos, but allows this one for me because I don't run a way to tutor for it, and when it happens I'm doing big things, like creating a million 1/1 spirits and killing with Impact Tremors, or casting it a million times to Aetherflux Reservoir everyone to death, or drawing my while deck with Whirlwind of Thought, Jeskai Ascendancy, Chromatic Orrery, or Idol of Oblivion and winning with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, or drawing out Approach of the Second Sun twice, or if I'm feeling particularly cheesy I'll make a million mana and draw the game with Earthquake. I just love how unlike most infinite combos it lets me win the game in a bunch of crazy ways and I love the fact that the cards are amazing on their own, if my group asks me not to use the infinite combo I'll just slap a counterspell on that bad boy and get real mean lol

Monomanamaniac on Isochron scepter and dramatic reversal …

enpc I would certainly think of dramatic scepter as a compact combo. Any good edh decI not in green is running a ton of mana rocks anyways, so unless you're tutoring up the combo it's very compact. I haven't gotten to run the combo enough to run into any counter hate or ability hate, but it does exist lol, that's why I don't rely on it, it's just a happy thing that if it Congress together, I win virtually on the spot

jaymc1130 I will agree that protean hulk needs a pretty big package to go with it, but I have to disagree on dramatic scepter. You don't "have" to build around it, it needs mana rocks that you'd likely play anyways, and at least for me it needs pay offs that I'm running because they're good in the deck on their own. Besides that I don't even run any traditional storm cards, the only one I do run is Aetherflux Reservoir, which goes infinite with the combo, but I could win a dozen different ways with the combo. I kinda feel like if infinite spells, infinite mana, and infinite triggers doesn't win you the game on the spot, you've built your deck wrong.

Imo, I don't actively try to assemble this combo as a way to win, it's in my deck because individually the cards are Good enough to work on their own, I feel good if I drastic reversal by itself and untap my rocks for a quick boost, and I feel good if I get isochron scepter down with a draw or counterspell on it, so they're both desired cards that if I get them together will most games result in an instant win
